The Battle of Hubbardton was a rear guard action by the Patriot Army after the fall of Fort Ticonderoga. The Battle was sufficiently hard fought so as to stop pursuit by the British Army and allow the remainder of the Patriot Army to successfully escape. And to survive to fight at the Battle of Saratoga.
Mr Venter provides an excellent discussion on the battle. He also addresses several issues that have been in contention over the past two centuries. I feel that his conclusions on these issues are well thought out and the most likely of the alternatives proposed over the years.
I would highly commend this book to those interested in the American Revolution, Military History in general and to those interested in the New England and Lake Champlain regions.
While not a big fan of the "Saved the Revolution" titling convention, the author makes a good case for his subtitle. The History Press seems to have developed a good format that covers secondary topics such as Hubbardton, with a nice combination of narrative, illustrations, and maps. This volume will certainly serve as the best description of the battle for a long time to come. Highly recommended.
